George Washington understood why we have a Second Amendment *UPDATED*

George Washington and the 2nd Amendment

Hat tip: Caped Crusader

UPDATE: If something seems too good to be true, it usually is.  Thanks to Earl, I know that Washington actually said this:  “A free people ought not only to be armed but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well digested plan is requisite: And their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories, as tend to render them independent on others, for essential, particularly for military supplies.”  It’s a great quotation in support of arms, but not quite as punchy.

    Timely message and reminder, Bookworm.
    Tomorrow is President’s Day and the current “won” would adamantly disagree.

    A lot of teenagers in America wouldn’t like the Left as much if they realized dependence meant going back to an era where their parents paid for and controlled everything. Why do teenagers want a car? So they can maybe make independent decisions as to where to go, perhaps?
    Why then do people need guns and economic jobs? Maybe because if they didn’t have them, they could be Made to Do things by more powerful entities?
